MMED 652 Modern Orchestra Classroom: Meeting the Needs of All, One Student at a Time



3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

The Modern Orchestra Classroom: Meeting the Needs of All, One Student at a Time. String educators
are faced with external challenges that impact student musical growth such as course scheduling,
state testing, and student conflicts. In addition, teachers need to address multiple
capacities such as implementing new technology, working with diverse student populations, and
using differentiation strategies to meet the needs of all learners. This course will address
the challenges of serving the needs of all students while maintaining instructional
integrity and curricular goals prescribed by district and state mandates. Each day a different
topic will be covered in depth, as it relates to developing high quality string programs.
Afternoon music reading sessions will be tied into the topic of the day, as will research based
on practical and clinical application readings. Students will be expected to bring a string
instrument and to participate in all aspects of playing daily throughout the course.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
